Joseph was saved at the age of 14 and surrendered to full-time ministry when he was 19. “I am passionate about reaching people where they are with the wonderful message of Jesus. My desire is for you to feel welcomed, loved, and ‘at home’ each and every time you come to First Baptist. We are real people, with real stories, who are trying to be more like Christ each day. Don’t worry if you have messed up or aren’t perfect. We have messed up too and are nowhere close to perfect!” He is married to his best friend, Lindsay, and they have four children. Elliott, Noah, Emma, and Parker.
